Ready to Assemble

Our new kitchen is here, albeit in hundreds of pieces. There were four pallets that arrived totaling a weight of 1500lbs. After some lengthy research we decided that ordering ready to assemble cabinets from The Cabinet Joint ( was the best balance between cost and quality. For now we have simply moved everything indoors and gone through the boxes to make sure everything we ordered is there. After several times of miscounting and recounting we finally decided that we got everything we will need. We'll see if that is true when we start putting it all together in a couple of weeks.
Here are all the cabinet boxes lined up in the guest bedroom.Guests can sleep on the couch if they wish.
The doors and drawer fronts are all wrapped up to protect their recently added silky smooth finish. There's a faint smell of chemicals in our living room now. Maybe it'll cover up the other smells.The circles and large pacman shapes are the lazy susans for the corner cabinets. Six in total, to ensure plenty of laziness.Just because these drawer boxes are sitting on the table saw it may seem that I built them. I don't have that much time on my hands. Luckily, the drawers come assembled and are all nicely dovetailed together.
